The winning competition entry for the railway station redevelopment in Chiasso (Switzerland) creates a multipurpose urban hub by folding the culture of fashion into the urban context. The joint venture between Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and C+S Architects integrates the restructuring of pre-existing buildings and the design of new complexes for two fashion schools: SAMS and STA, the art and craft school of fashion design and the high school of fashion. Inserting innovative structures into the city and the territory, the design for the new compact knowledge center creates spaces that welcome products, processes and activities associated with fashion design, for students and the wider community alike.
